A fabulous night was had by all at our 2015 Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony, which was held on Friday 6th November at The Hilton Hotel, Manchester.
Over 350 people attended the event, which was sponsored by Pannone Corporate LLP and BCL Legal and judging from the fact the dance floor was full until the early hours, everyone had a fantastic night.
The event was hosted by ITV’s Paul Crone and the guests were entertained by Victor Haines, a cool R&B/Soul singer throughout the dinner followed by a live band and disco.
There was a fantastic auction and raffle with some fabulous prizes including the opportunity to spend the day with Sale Sharks Rugby Team and a Table for 4 in the Chairman’s Club at Manchester City Football Club during the game with Borussia Monchengladbach.
As well as raising funds for Cancer Research, the event is held to recognise the amazing quality and talent of lawyers and legal teams working within commerce and industry in the North West Region.
Every year, we are amazed at the excellence and standard of the nominations we receive and this year, the talent has been outstanding. This year’s winners were:-
